The Partnership for the Presidio announced opening season programs at San Francisco’s most anticipated new national park destination – Presidio Tunnel Tops.

The slate was co-curated with the community to include experiences that reflect our region’s cultural vibrancy and invite communities from around the Bay Area to visit the Presidio. The events, art, and food experiences will complement Presidio Tunnel Tops’ spectacular views, picnic sites, and play spaces, which will be unveiled on opening day, Sunday, July 17.

The experiences were co-curated by the Presidio Activator Council, comprised of Bay Area leaders, activists, and artists representing communities historically underrepresented in national parks. The council was formed in 2021 by the Presidio Trust, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and the National Park Service (NPS). The intent was to use the same community-driven approach used to design Presidio Tunnel Tops to create experiences that welcome all. Feedback was provided through a new Community Experts program, from leaders with deep connections to neighborhoods across the city to offer feedback on how Presidio Tunnel Tops and the broader Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) can be relevant and responsive to community needs.
